Nose
Grainy malt and sweetcorn, with a little citrus tartness and a banana-skin note suggesting astringency.
Palate
Slightly papery, sweet and grainy, with a pinch of sourness and some cherry-like alcohol notes.
Finish
Reasonably hoppy and bitter, but otherwise dry and chewy with an unclean graininess.
Comment
The canned version brewed by Wells & Young's in the UK. Definitely a beer to serve very cold.
